Life feels very out of whack right now.
So many things seem to be moving in slow motion.
And the movers arrive on Monday to start packing up our house.
It’s amazing how one action, moving, can create a million emotions. I never know how I feel anymore! I’ve been trying to come to terms with it, but have also been avoiding the situation a little…all of our pictures still hang on the walls, nothing has been packed in a box, and our furniture all remains intact.
But come Monday, things will begin moving very quickly.

The best ‘closure action’ we’ve made was our little get-together on Saturday night! So many of our friends stopped by to say goodbye…and par-tay! Stu and I stayed up later that night then we have in the last year. And while there are still some very hard goodbyes in our near future, having one more party in our little house was therapeutic in so many ways.
And we cleaned out the liquor cabinet!
So I will continue my mantra each and every day (it is basically a list of the many reasons we are doing this), spend as much time with friends and family as possible, and keep moving forward.
And while I know many tears will be involved as we drive away from our house for the last time, I also know there are a million exciting experiences in the road ahead.
I just keep telling myself that…maybe sometime soon I’ll believe it!
